. i was thinking of all of the people, red foxx, sammy davis, jr., diane carol, all of the people, you are the longest running. >> also, i own the show. i do not work for the hotels like the others did. i set the price of the ticket, everything like that. so i set the prices high. tavis: how have you managed to that? that is a long time to be a headliner. >> it is a long time, but people are coming back. i am so blessed. you watch the news. i watch you. the jokes pop up. i tell people in las vegas that they should love black men. black people love air conditioning. when you go to las vegas, it is 115 degrees at midnight. people would get killed in las vegas if it were not for the black man. air-conditioning and traffic lights. tavis: how do you after all of these years, up with things? you cannot tell the same jokes for 10 years. >> i get scared, people coming back. i can go back to things that have changed. let's just go back to jamaica. what was in london, the olympics. the guy running so fast. usain bolt. he kept running. he would have come in third. the little black girl, gabby dou
control legislation. >> i'm going to bring in congresswoman diane black, a tennessee republican on the budget ways and means committee. it's good to see you congresswoman. >> mark kelley was talking about the misinformation that's out there over the gun issue and yesterday we saw sarah palin post a face book message, we're going to default eventually and that's why the feds are stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest. not so sinister, homeland security is stockpiling ammo for target practice, two you condemn these tactics that are being used? >> let me just say that my heart just goes out to the newtown parents and the entire community that was just devastated by this violence and so we see this in a much smaller way, all across our country every day, with violence in general. i want to make sure that we're looking at this issue intelligently and from all -- why adam lanza did what he did. unprecedented levels of violent games, music, so on. none of these things that we're talking about right now that are the biggest in the message is really going to help what happened in ne
as concerned about it as you are. >> host: this e-mail -- this is from diane in brooklyn, mr. robinson, we have about ten minutes left in the program. excuse me, mr. robinson, you seem like a brilliant, thoughtful, committed and well-intentioned man. i've heard many things listening to you that i did not know and wish had been more publicized. i am shik to your cause -- sympathetic to your cause, but i have a problem. my question is this: how can you expect to ever produce a generation of black youth psychologically capable of overcoming the terrible wound inflicted upon your people when you keep picking off the scab, when you keep passing on to your children the victim mentality to which i am sad to see you still maintain allegiance? >> guest: well, i don't know what to say. i don't think i can satisfactorily answer that question for that person. um, and i don't try to answer that question, frankly. i think those who have endured and those who have been wounded and those who were in trouble know what i'm saying. and they understand it. um, so i won't even try to answer that question. >> host:
's diane sawyer. >> the church is in the business of fundamental change internally. so when we speak about change in the church, yeah, there could be a change in style. there's certainly always going to be a change of heart because conversion of heart is what we're about. but there can't be a tampering with the changeless teachings of the church. >> dolan said he laughed when they first heard reports of pope benedict's resignation because they said they heard the same thing so many times before. >> of course, all of this has led to much speculation who might be the pontiff's successor. the top names being mentioned by experts are cardinal scola, 71 years old and from italy. he's being called the front-runner right now. canada's cardinal mark olette is next in line, 68 years old. and the former archbishop of quebec. 64-year-old cardinal peter turkson of ghana is also mentioned. and this is significant, since there's a growing catholic population in africa. argentina's cardinal and italy's cardinal angelo banoska is also on the possible list. >>> in other news this morning, president obama i
workforce partnership program. diane joined the program because she was unemployed after having been laid off and was looking for a new career. diane has already been hired by a corporation in new holstein as a c and c operator. she started work literally yesterday. diane is with us here tonight. [applause] diane, congratulations to you and your fellow classmates. we worked with the university of wisconsin system in a new flexible degree program called uw flex option. [applause] to help adult learners earn degrees in targeted fields. nearly a quarter of all adults in the state have some college credit without a degree. for many time and money are the barriers to finishing that degree. i can relate. during my senior year at market university i was offered a full-time job at the american red cross. i would thought i squeeze in a course here and there and finish things off in a year or two. then tonette and i got married and we had mat, then came alice. next you're putting time and extra money into your kids. the uw flex option will provide a less time-consuming less costly way to help peopl
because the tea party has actually ruined the republican party. >> host: jim's in austin, texas. diane is an independent, she's in the vermont. hi, diane. go ahead. >> caller: hi. thanks for c-span, the only actual reality show on tv. thank you so much. i usually call on the republican line, but i'm not sure what i am anymore. i do know for a fact that i'm a member of the taxed enough already group, and that is what tea actually stands for. i'm not really sure what the original question was, i think it had something to do with how is the sequester going to hurt -- >> host: and we're asking how will it affect you? >> caller: i don't think it's going to affect me at all. i'm so low in the tax bracket now that i'm pairly surviving. our family has learned how to live quite well on very little money, and it it can be done, ad it can be done pretty happily for our small family. this is not a democracy, it is representative republic, and there is a lot of misinformation and disinformation that has been perpetuated over 40 years of the public school system, i believe. people are very, very mis
interrogation techniques. the targeted killing program and the use of drones. diane feinstein gavels in the hearing after an interruption from protesters. >> i ask that this room be cleared right now with the capitol police -- will the capitol police please come in and clear a room? -- clear the room? all signs out. if the capitol police will clear a room, please. [indiscernible] >> please clear the room. please clear the room. all right. we should clear the entire room and let people back in. >> we need more capitol police is what we need. will trylet's -- we and start. [gavel] >> begin this hearing and let me say right up front that the process is that people are respectful, that they cannot tear, they do not hiss, they do not show signs. this is to listen. if that is a problem for anybody ask you to leave the room now. because what we will do is remove you from the room. let there be no doubt. so if i may, i would like to begin. the committee meets today in open session to consider the nomination of john brennan to be the 21st director of the central intelligence agency and the fi
stories about the freedom ride starring diane nash, by and large, probably thee most overlooked central figure in that period. it came out -- it came out that the stories turned out to be 18, and when i did it, i felt i could boil down the gist of it to give people a sense of it in the number of -- i really had more of a sense of pages. you cannot do this 800 -- you can't do it 400, let's see if you can do it in, you know, under 3 # 00, and i -- i'm very proud of this, i did it in under 200. [laughter] [applause] i wanted to go the extra mile on the chance that what i'm hoping is to have people say, wow, we are so out of phase, this ought to make us feel good about what we can do. why is this that we don't, and that our politics is paralyzed and that we don't talk more about race? that's how it -- i forgot what you said at the beginning. [laughter] >> debois. >> debois, the prob of the century is the color line. it didn't go away, just like my three books didn't go away, but i don't think it's as central. when he spoke, remember, the world was still colonized. most of the world was colo
chambliss, dianne feinstein, but not anybody else? until we literally bludgeoned them, diane and i, to include everybody. it is amazing. i pursue dianne feinstein's statement about staff. under the previous administration, when you have a briefing with the president or the vice president and the cia and others, you are not allowed to -- i can remember when pat roberts was the chairman and i was vice chairman, we were not allowed to talk to each other driving up and driving back. staff were allowed to do nothing. you are surrounded by people who work with you and fill you in. people who are experts. we are, too. they've got to be part of this. when the olc comes, it should come to them also. i strongly agree with the chairman's views on that. in the enhance interrogation techniques matter, a handful of former cia officials who were personally invested in defending the interrogation program, largely because their professional reputations depend on it, i think it does a great disservice to discuss this issue. you understand that this took six years to write, not just 6000 pages. perha
so i have two stories about the freedom ride starring diane - by and large who is probably the most overlooked central figure in that period. so it cannot the stories cannot be 18 and when i did it i felt i could boil down the adjusted debt to give people a sense of it. you can't do it let's see if you can do it under 300. i'm very proud of this. i did it in under 200. [laughter] people say we are so out this ought to make us feel good about what we can do we don't talk more about race i forgot what you said at the beginning to read the problem of the 21st century is still the color line, too. it didn't go away. the world was still colonized it was colonized during that time and was literally by the european nations we don't want to have an empire but we are going into a superpower. in that sense it did make for the colonization and the race and segregation in the united states and the legacy of slavery, a global problem we are still dealing with a lot of truth in the person still paying and the dislocation today for anyplace in the world the british or french diplomat drew a line o
